The Melbourne Planetarium is offering after-hours and adults only access for a series of full-dome film screenings

Now I don’t know about you, but I would personally like to be well-informed when aliens invade earth and claim their place as our overlords. In this regard, the Planetarium at Scienceworks might be able to help.

Until December 28, the Planetarium will be offering guests the chance to explore fluorescent coral reefs, marvel at the cosmos, dive into the biggest black holes and get answers on how to prepare for that alien invasion. You won’t go spacing out with these shows, either, as they’re loaded with amazing visuals and stellar content.

Each night features two screenings, one at 7.30pm and the other at 9pm, with films varying from month to month. Among the options are: What’s in the Sky Tonight, Elemental, and Dance Films in the Dome.

The bar will be open if you fancy a drink with your trip into space. But be prepared, I hear it’s out of this world.
